What Consumers Want: Identifying the Unmet Needs of Australians Living with Arthritis
Arthritis is a common joint condition, with 1 in 7 Australians experiencing some form of arthritis in 2017-18, that negatively impacts the lives of those living with the condition and the people who care for them.
This report is the second of three reports that Research Australia has prepared for Arthritis Australia. The aim of this report was to identify the unmet health care needs reported by people living with arthritis. This will help expose current research gaps in the area of arthritis. Closer engagement with consumers will help Arthritis Australia, as a crucial funder of arthritis research, to advocate for the research which matters most to those with lived experience of arthritis.
This report documents three activities to identify unmet health care needs reported by those with lived experience of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
